Hi Experts,
few days ago for some reason the server was running slow , I cleaned it by running malware bytes and was infected of a bunch of stuff. it seems to be cleaned now . but today I have an issue with some users complaining it's running slow. after investigation , I see that users can't access the Netlogon and sysvol from my server I also try to access it by using the DC name (DCname\sysvol) from the server but with no success , I get the following message the specified network name is no longer available.

How can I fix this issue?
Thanks
David

First run DCDiag and check the event logs on the servers.
Run Net View to view shares. Check the NTFS and the Share permissions, Authenticated users should have at least Read permissions to those folders.

running Net view, shows me all my computers in my network. The share permissions on the C:\Windows\Sysvol\Sysvol has the correct permissions (Authenticated users- Read)
How do I check the NTFS?

You Can use powershell to get the ACL's for this...

get-acl \\servername\c$\windows\sysvol\ | fl

Ahhh yeah i see that now. If you install powershell on the machine it should work. Can't you simply just go to the network locaiton, right click and check the security (NTFS) permissions?

Also check the link below to re-create the Netlogon and Sysvol Shares.

So I went to c:\Windows\sysvol and open the security on it. Attached is what I see for sysvol.

also on the link you provided earlier , it is if I have one domain working and one bad. I only have one DC in my network (only one server for the environment)

I ran the Dcdiag /v after I was able to install the tools and this is what came out of it:

NTFS permissions look ok. What about the sharing permissions?

See this article:
